Fiction. Romance. HTML:In the shore town of Sea Breeze, Sadie discovers that fame is nothing in the face of passion. A steamy read from bestselling author Abbi Glines.
Sadie White's summer job is at the beach, but she won't be working as a lifeguard. Since her mom is pregnant and refuses to work, Sadie will be taking over as a domestic servant for a wealthy family on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie were normal‚??if she hadn't spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house‚??maybe she'd be excited about working for a rock star. But she's not.

Even though Sadie isn't impressed by Jax's fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax, but he fights his attraction: Relationships never work in his world, and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. Yet as the summer stretches on, Jax's passion leaves him breathless‚??and Sadie feels like the only source of oxygen.

For a debut novel, not bad. A little too cutesy at times... ( )
  Stacie-C | May 8, 2021 |
my rate is inbetween 2 and 3 stars

don't get me wrong, I liked it but there were things that didn't sit well for me. Mostly I found quite unbelievable such a love/devotion after 2 brief encounters and then I really didn't like how Sadie's mom acted or how her depression was resolved:
" Jessica is getting help. She is sick, Sadie. It is called postpartum depression, and she has a very bad case. She is at the best clinic money can buy, and when she comes back to you, she will be just like new. I swear it."
really?!?! Are you serious ?!???

Marcus was my favorite character, it's a pity Sadie didn't choose him ... Well I hope he gets an even better girl in his book ;) ( )

This was short and sweet. I keep reading these books where kids have terrible parents and it kills me. How someone could be so irresponsible and dump all the adult worries on a teenager is beyond me. Sadie was so strong and took on so much to help her mom pay bills and get ready for the baby. I liked that she wasn't star struck by Jax and treated him like a regular guy. Jax clearly didn't know how to be sensitive to Sadie's feelings. She's never had a boyfriend, especially a famous one so of course she was insecure when she saw him out with other girls. Of course this book is a happy ending, so that made me smile. The narrators did a good job on the audiobook and I will be reading book 2 :) ( )

So I did this backwards, I read book 2 ‚ÄúBecause of Low‚ÄĚ first. I LOVED that book. This one did not disappoint. I really enjoyed learning more about Sadie because I liked her in book 2. I really enjoyed seeing some of Marcus too (he is great). I knew Sadie and Jax were together it was good to see how they came to be. Jax is such a great boyfriend, not as good as Marcus if you ask me :) ( )

I actually started this series from book four, [b:Just for Now|16116392|Just for Now (Sea Breeze, #4)|Abbi Glines|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1356512856s/16116392.jpg|21491232]. I read an expert from it not realizing it wasn't a first book and fell in love with the story and rushed to download it to my Kindle. I've never not started a series from book one. Before I was even finished I knew I had to read the series.

Breathe was a sweet love story that I enjoyed immensely. I was also lucky to grab a re-release with Jax' POV, I always love hearing the guys feelings and thoughts. It makes the story even more juicier. I really liked Sadie and Jax as characters and instantly bonded with them. I could feel and believe their excitement and fears about each other and what a relationship between them would mean.

Basically it's as the synopsis says: Sadie is raising her mom and Jax is a teen idol rock star who is feeling suffocated by his fame and the fakeness of it all, but when Sadie appears in his life he can finally breathe. It's a cute little love story that will make you swoon. *sigh* ( )
